OBJECTION!!![edit]

I OBJECT most strongly to placing the classical Jewish texts under the category "Jewish Mythology". "Category:Jewish mythology" and the Subcategories being "Category:Jewish texts" And then God becomes ARBITRARILY part of "mythology"! Perhaps Midrash could go with it, BUT not these others. I vote that the titles be REVERSED and that "Jewish mythology" become a Subtext of Jewish texts. I plan to take this to arbitration!IZAK 12:23, 6 Jun 2004 (UTC)

How about renaming this "Jewish folklore"? AndyL 21:31, 2 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Multiple categories[edit]

Because of the high tolerance that "God's chosen people" (GCP) display for being characterized as anything but oh-so-very-special (see above), and the fact that Judaism is a culture/race/land/religion depend on which one of GCP you talk to, this category should be under several different "mythology" categories so that Gentiles can ever find it as they navigate through our categories.--Zakteh2 (talk) 10:28, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
